Instagram Adds New Photo Editing Tools And Post Notification Features

After introducing its photo collage app ‘Layout’, Instagram is taking its social networking game higher with the release of two new photo editing tools and post notification features.

The ‘Color’ tool lets you “tint the highlights or shadows” in your photos from a selection of colors including yellow, orange, cyan, and blue.

With the ‘Fade’ tool, you can add softer tones to your images and control the effect with a slider. Both tools are located in the app’s Adjust menu.

In addition, you can now subscribe to specific users to receive notifications whenever they post something, making it easier for you to track your friends’ activities. Simply tap the ‘...’ menu when viewing their profile and select “Turn on Post Notifications”.

Android users can download the new update from Google Play, while the iOS update will be rolled out to the App Store in a few days.
